International Trade and Development

Keith takes a keen interest in international development, particularly in issues relating to international trade and global finance, and also stresses the need to create a more equitable development framework for poorer countries. Keith will resist further efforts to increase trade liberalisation and is demanding far greater regulations on the banking sector to ensure that those who indulge in irresponsible trading and reckless gambling are properly held to account. Keith will also fight for high standards of ‘fair trade’ to become the norm for all produce, and for an increased focus on localised economies.
